Help removing front bumper.

I am trying to remove my front bumper so that I can change out the mesh grills and reflectors. I cannot seem to get the bumper off. I saw a video but it was not very helpful. I dont know how many tabs there are or how you do it on the drivers side because it is blocked off and only has a little door. I have looked at the service manual for the pre-LCI but they were not helpful

The parts diagram on RealOEM.com might help. You don't say what model you have, but here's a link to the assembly for my 2013 x35d.

Here's a PDF on the removal of a pre-LCI front bumper ...

The LCI bumper should be very similar.
